    1. The book is supposed to be about Eurasians It s mostly a long ramble There is little cohesiveness in the plot You wished it was better Editing is very weak an longtime resident Englishman did it While it s flattering to have a book about Eurasians especially if you are one it s unbearable when it makes no sense Reading it is like imposing a headache on yourself There are better reads out there You re better off reading a history book on Eurasians or visiting a museum exhibit Skip the torture.

    2. A decent read of the Eurasian community pre independence Amazing descriptions of the food, places, people and especially that drunk Old Joe s banter.I think this book lost it s strong Eurasian flavour later on as the Konfrontasi plot creeps in It does the rich descriptive scenes of her early life no justice, pretty much redundant.This is a book that would ve done better if it was probably split into two separate titles.
